Friday, October 15 is the homecoming football game for the Burlington, South Burlington and Winooski SeaWolves. The team will compete against St. Johnsbury Academy at Buck Hard Field. And the stands are expected to be a bit more … colorful ... than usual. Co-host Connor Cyrus tells us more about the game and its special halftime show.
